    Substitute for mushrooms?

    The mushrooms are a critical component of this dish as it's a mushroom sauce.

    Can i use chicken breast instead of chicken liver?

    That would probably work well but would make a very different dish.

    This recipe was absolutely delicious. I did use 30ml less cream, as the recipe seemed to be swimming in it, and I added 15ml fresh lemon juice which thickened the sauce (acid reaction in the cream). The lemon added only 1g carbs split 4 ways. Will definitely be making this again.

    This recipe is among my favorites for good! However, I altered heavy cream to sour cream and it worked so good either! Thanks!

    Yummy. Worked well, was easy and tasted great. To get a proper mash from the broccoli I had to use an immersion blender (which gave something that looked exactly like the picture). Would be nice to mention that. Will make again.
